More on Fruitarianism:
I went fruitarian on Dec. 1st, 2009 as an experiment. I understand that 100% fruit diets are controversial, and that many (including Doug Graham) say that they are not sustainable. However, consuming greens in their natural state never appealed to me. I had to blend greens in a smoothie in order to handle them at all. If I observe a health or fitness decline, or develop strong cravings, I will not hesitate to terminate the experiment.
I have a couple other reasons for having an interest in fruitarianism, besides disliking greens. Other advantages of a fruitarian diet: ethics – I am no longer harming plants when I eat my food, environment – fruit trees yield more calories per acre and don’t damage topsoil, and I am not eating the toxic chemicals in the leaves that plants use for protection (“lettuce opium”, etc.).
